"To Paragot I owe everything. He is at once my benefactor, my venerated master, my beloved friend, my creator." Thus begins the story of one of the greatest characters of English Literature - Paragot the lovable Bohemian and celebrated Bon Vivant. A young urchin from the London slums is adopted by the hero and given an adventurous education traveling through Europe, tambourine player in a group of ragamuffin musicians. Paragot, however, has a dark romantic secret in his past which threatens to change their lives. Can the boy's idol remain honourable and yet stay true to his values? The author of this exuberant tale was described as the `apostle of cheerfulness' and The Beloved Vagabond is a truly uplifting and heartening story with much intelligent humour, whimsy and a liberal dose of wisdom! It will enthrall and delight all free spirits. An absolute gem.

"Peter Joyce is the most remarkable one-man band in audiobook publishing. Joyce, an experienced actor, reads them all himself." (The Independent)
